The Solomon Island endemic species of Charontidae, Stygophrynus (Neocharon) forsteri Dunn 1949, is transferred to the genus Charon, thus forming the new combination Charon forsteri (Dunn 1949). The subgenus Neocharon is a junior synonym of Charon. The distribution of Stygophrynus is found to be restricted to Southeast Asia from southern Myanmar to Java, not spreading east of Wallace's Line. We provide a full description, diagnosis, and numerous figures of Charon forsteri.
